Although as said its is celebrated all over North-East Thailand (also in the small villages) the biggest and most famous festival is in Yasothon. There the festival is celebrated this year from 8 May 2015 to 12 May 2015. It is a very popular festival to visit by Thai people and by now probably all hotels are full (well there are not many hotels in Yasathon.
The rockets are home-made but they become more power-full every year and are a danger to the airport nearby in Yasathon. It is a wonderful festival and Yasothon is a wonderful small provincial town to enjoy real upcountry life in Thailand. See also Wikipedia Bun Bang Fai
